iBall Slide i701

Just a few weeks after India-based Micromax launched its Windows 8.1 2-in-1 notebook, the Canvas Laptab, in that country, another local OEM, iBall, is joining the party. This week, it announced a new Windows 8.1 7-inch tablet, the Slide i701, that should go on sale later this week for Rs. 4,999 (about $79).

The iBall Slide i701 has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, according to NDTV Gadgets. iBall has not revealed the resoltion of the tablet's 7-inch display, but it's likely to be on the low end of the scale. It has a quad-core Intel Atom processor inside, but again there's no word on its clock speed. The tablet does have a 2MP rear camera but only a 0.3MP front-facing camera. The tablet comes with a free one-year subscription to Office 365 along with 1TB of OneDrive storage space.

The iBall Slide i701 will come with a few extras, including an engraved signature of Kareena Kapoor, the well-known Bollywood actress who also serves as a spokesperson for iBall. The tablet will also come with a free HDMI cable and three covers.
